In a scientific review of the research literature, researchers highlighted quercetin as an effective anti-allergy agent.
Quercetin’s anti-allergic properties are characterized by stimulation of the immune system, inhibition of histamine release, decrease in pro-inflammatory cytokines, and a decrease in inflammatory leukotrienes.
Quercetin can restrain antigen-specific IgE antibody formation, thereby short-circuiting the allergic response.
Quercetin has anti-inflammatory and immunomodulating properties that can be effectively utilized in the treatment of late-phase bronchial asthma responses, allergic rhinitis, and peanut-induced anaphylactic reactions.
According to the researchers:
“The results of the studies prove a unique position of quercetin in the treatment of allergic disorders and the possibility of using phytochemicals such as quercetin for an efficient cure.”
